Siemens acquires provider of virtual training for industrial companies 

“Virtual training has huge growth potential. Vizendo’s service and software range ideally complements our digital services and thus our Digital Enterprise portfolio”, stressed Karen Florschütz, CEO of the Customer Services Business Unit. “This is how we will effectively support our customers – from preparations to the start of production to continuous optimization. Being able to train their employees virtually in each of these phases and at any place significantly enhances our customers’ flexibility while reducing both the effort and cost.”
Erik Gustafsson, CEO of Vizendo, added: “Together we can explore the full potential of Vizendo’s innovative technology and virtual training expertise. Siemens’ global presence and extensive industrial knowledge will ensure that our current and future customers benefit from innovative, seamlessly integrated solutions.”
Vizendo has been a provider of services and software for Virtual Operator Training (VOT) since 2004. Generated directly from the customer’s own CAD/PLM data, these services provide considerable benefits on the basis of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business models. More than 70 percent of Vizendo customers are using CAD/PLM data with the Siemens Teamcenter solution. The focus is on production, maintenance and repair training, as well as on induction training and qualification monitoring. The majority of customers is from the automotive industry, but customers from other industries, such as aerospace, also greatly benefit from the software.
The acquisition took effect as per on June 1, 2020. Vizendo is thus a 100 percent subsidiary of Siemens AB, Sweden. With its 23 software designers and service engineers, Vizendo will be integrated into the Digital Industries Customer Services Business Unit.
